The event is scheduled to be held just prior to Apple's WWDC event, but we're not entirely sure what's going to be announced. As it's Samsung, and taking its rather short history of health wearable into accounts, it could be anything from announcing new sensors/components to a new product release. We'll hopefully have more details around the time of the event later this month.
